https://imgbb.com/Q9gyj34

Current wordcount: 46000

The focus of the book will develop itself to fantasy, the manifesting and growing of incredible abilities and of course, the character development and interpersonal relationship.

There will be a lot of action and plot twists, creating a rollercoaster of emotions. Hope you give it a try and if possible some feedback for me :-).

Devour The Heavens

Ancient legends crumble into dust and the resistance against hell itself feebly locks itself away.  The High Heavens have been closed off leaving humanity at the mercy of demons.  Portals to hell are popping open and the demons are growing ever bolder.  Can mankind rise to the occasion or will they become slaves to the demons?  


Its a race against time.  Will the humans of earth adapt to the absence of heaven?  How can they cultivate to higher levels without the assistance of the heavens?

Hello,

My story is called Reborn in Another World as a (Colorless) Demon Prince or Re:Colorless:[url= https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/35605/reborn-in-another-world-as-a-colorless-demon-prince]



[/url]

The story is still very young but I don't think it'll be like most other isekais or reincarnation fics. I like hitting emotional highs after a good build up so if you can stick with it past chapter 6 then things'll smooth out from the slow start.

If you like stories with emphasis on characters then this is probably right up your alley.

Word count is about 45k at 17 chapters

The Wind Shifts
https%3A%2F%2Fwww.royalroadcdn.com%2Fcovers-full...1595900364

Mingan, something of a lone wolf, has his solitary wanderings interrupted when he's put in a position to rescue Elloreah, one of the rare Ethereal. There is a demand for rare creatures such as Elloreah among the mythic black markets. Mingan cannot turn a blind eye knowing what will become of her should she fall prey to poachers. By rescuing her, he finds himself pulled back into the vast network and influences of the Tutelar, the shadow organization that keeps the magical elements of Earth under wraps. His fate is soon intertwined with Elloreah's, whose exile from her home world is far more complicated than either of them realize.

The Wind Shifts is a rural fantasy novel based in the Central Valley of California, and follows the lives of the mythic creatures that hide in plain sight during the late 1960s.

Are you looking for a story with a slow moving plot focused on characterization and world building? I recommend my story for those looking for a different kind of Chinese fantasy romance.

This novel tells the story of eighteen year old Jia Meifeng, a proud Shanghai girl raised in her father's mysterious village to be a bride in one of the ten courts of Diyu, the Chinese equivalent to hell. Rather than being fearful and nervous, Meifeng takes this as a chance to gain the family she's always wanted.

Instead, Meifeng is abandoned on her wedding night. Angry at this betrayal, Meifeng begins to forge her own path by masquerading as a demon and making use of her fortune telling powers. As she slowly gets used to her new life, Meifeng's fortune telling ability reveals that someone has been murdering poor souls before their judgement day. Now, she must work together with the husband who once abandoned her and her new friends to solve the murder before the killer decides to come after her.

Hey folks, it's been a while so I'll put in another plug for my serial Sisters of Rail.

It's a first-person female-led adventure with a little action and a fair bit of psychological stuff, about a young woman trying to find her place in a world that's making increasingly little sense to her, while not dying and hopefully not causing anyone else to die.  (She doesn't do so well at that last part.)  The setting is something between fantasy and sci-fi, the exact nature of which is being gradually revealed throughout the story.

It's now at 87k words and 30 chapters (though 4 are shorter poetic pieces and one's the prelude).

Features steam engines, heliographs, aetherspinners, crossbows, aetherrailers, too many siblings with similar names, winjeels, bicycles, low-tech podcasting, aether-boosted artificial magestones, nonstandard genders, oppressive religion, friendship, and at least one person's head being blown off.

And here's the poster:

https%3A%2F%2Fwww.patreon.com%2Ffile%3Fh%3D36346211%26i%3D5566711

Here's a list of the titles of chapters published so far.  The subtitles are all quotes from the chapters.

Prelude: Then - You Got Yourself into this Mess
Chapter One: Home - A Grinding of Mental Gears
Chapter Two: Herb - I Mirror Your Greetings
Chapter Three: Cook - Appreciate the Char
Chapter Four: Interlude: Tale - Demon-Cursed Amount of Mud
Chapter Five: Yard - Unintended Signal Flag

If you are into Manga/Anime or just Power-Fantasy with tragedy in it and of course there's a love interest. This is a Shounen-esk take in Fantasy Novel form. I am trying to write something that may be able to be seen in the same light as Manga, Light Novels, etc. 
Honestly, I am not much of a reader or writer, but I always wanted to tell this story. I am getting better and I am putting the work in so I can deliver the story the way it should be. Chapter 1 was posted just yesterday, but chapter 2 is coming shortly and after that I will have them cranking out at a good pace. Check it out and I am not afraid of constructive criticism, so if you have any suggestions let me know, Thanks I hope you enjoy!
Also when you come check it out let me know what your story is and I will definitely check it out. Let's grow together!

With allies and enemies of multiple species, the Orion Galactic Arm Spur will be wracked by warfare the likes of which have not been seen. Cracked, harried, wounded, and damaged, Terran Descent Humanity willfully throws itself against the universe itself.

A Land of Myths and Legends 

It has been far too long since the Age of Humanity has come and gone, the only evidence of those times being ruins and relics, left over from a past shrouded in mystery.

In the center of the Human Continent, there exists a Tree, the origin of all the monsters and of humanity’s downfall. Yet, humans prevail, rising from the ashes every time.

Countries rise and fall, struggling in an endless cycle of conquest and bloodshed. Yet still they pray to the source of their misfortune, the Tree of Yggdrasil, hoping to be granted one of its miracles.

It has been centuries since the Tree has blessed a being. Only a select few in the past were able to receive its grace, bringing about a new form of power to the world and transcending humanity.

These beings, having created brand new lands of their own, are known as paragons of their own species, yet they are all cursed in one way or another.

Once again, humanity is rising, yet their growth brings about misfortune to all who surround them.

Those forsaken even by their own races face death, persecution and loneliness.

And yet, the Tree keeps its silence.

Until now…



A story with a developed world, growing characters and deep motivations

I think I'm replying a bit late. 

Wanna read something crazy? How about an other world venture with dark humor, profanity, gore, violent last but not the least sexual contents.

I'm currently writing this - https://www.royalroad.com/fictions/search?title=I+Died+%26+Reincarnated+As+Wolf+In+A+Fantasy+World

A man with fulfilling life gets reincarnated in another world, despite having no such desire. faced with overwhelming opponents, burning with resentment and burdened with a really dumb a.i. system, he embarks on a bloody trip. Humors are dark, offensive in cases. 

I am currently working on it, this is my first time writing a web novel, hopefully you guys will love it. It'll be a good read, i promise. peolove

"Monster power fantasy. Eat and become Stronger, Bigger, Dominant.

Rain is a survivor who got the short end of the stick in life. Reborn as a
terrifying and dangerous monster everything changes and he has the chance to truly grow."


This is a revenge story where the main character is killed and reborn as a werewolf like monster that grows larger and stronger as it eats.
It's main theme could be summed up with the word 'Dominance'. I've been keeping that word in mind throughout writing it.
It does not fade to black on sexual scenes or gore, it keeps it up front as is fitting for the theme, fair warning.

Title: Tales of the Terrace Republic
Genre: Science Fiction, Military Science Fiction, Thriller, Space Opera
Book 1 Synopsis: The Clearwater Patrol

Six centuries into the future and light-years into outer space, the only thing that has not changed is the struggles of the human condition.  The desires for power, love and survival persist in Tales of the Terrace Republic, a military space thriller that forges one flawed everyman into a hero.

Phillip Murphy is a veteran from a war that ended a decade ago.  He hasn’t had a promotion in a long time, and the shrinking armed forces have not been friendly.  The Terrace Navy puts him at the helm of a meager torpedo boat – a career-ending assignment.

But a routine space patrol finds his ship nearly ambushed by fighters, and when he tails them back to their base, Phillip discovers an anomaly – the investigation of which will change the course of his life forever.

Current Chapters: 22 + Prologue
Pages: 261
Schedule: Once a Week
Chapter Length: ~3000 words

The cover art is a placeholder, and I'm terrible with coming up with titles.  The story is a thriller so starts off slow and then starts to speed up till the climax.  The work is close to hard science fiction, it only breaks the speed of light for interstellar travel to keep the story moving.
